On Sunday, October 4, 2020, the 439 Top 3 hosted an Observance for National Disability Employment Awareness Month at Westover Air Reserve Base. Several speakers, including Sunshine Village’s Executive Director, Gina Kos, made up the presentation panel.
Kos said, “I was honored to be invited to this event. Sunshine Village is proud of our partnership with Westover Air Reserve Base and the work we have done together to employ people with disabilities. Our commercial cleaning company, Westover Maintenance Systems, has been cleaning the buildings and hangars at the base for over three decades.”
The U.S. Department of Labor announced the 2020 theme for this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month is “increasing access and opportunity.” In her presentation, Kos thanked the men and women, both military and civilian, who work at the base who have helped the organization increase access and opportunity for many people Sunshine Village supports within its Employment Services division.
